English singer-songwriter, Edward Christopher Sheeran MBE came through with this love song he labeled “Perfect”.
“Perfect” is an old-fashioned love ballad inspired by and dedicated to Ed’s then-fiancée (now wife) Cherry Seaborn. It is the fourth single from Sheeran’s 2017 album ÷.
He explained his motivation for writing “Perfect” in an interview with Music Choice:
I think the song “Perfect” is actually better than “Thinking Out Loud.” I think there was always a scare that “Thinking Out Loud” would define me and define my career. So I, I wrote a lot of songs trying to beat it and now I think, I think I have beaten it.
Thematically, the song is reminiscent of “18,” a song he wrote for his friends in One Direction.
The “Perfect Duet” featuring Beyoncé was released on Dec. 1, 2017 and the “Perfect Symphony” with Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli came out two weeks later on Dec. 15.
“Perfect” reached number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart on Dec. 23, 2017. It also topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Sweden and the UK.
However, the song “Perfect” was officially released on March 3, 2017 with production credit from Ed Sheeran, benny blanco & Will Hicks.
